God Speed - A poem for Remembrance

   Out from the thunder of battle,
   Down the pathway of pain,
   Into the infinite Peace
   That is God,
   My Brother, thou goest.

To all that is strongest in Strength,
   Tender in Tenderness.
Into the Infinite Love
   That is Life,
My brother, God speed thee.

                           – Eva Anstruther

From The Witness, 1st October 1915.
